How can anyone resist fries? And to top it, a healthy one at that!! My version of sweet potato fries is flavored with kashmiri red chilly powder for colour and spice that balances perfectly with the sourness of the tamarind pulp. It is a simple, healthy recipe that is sure to make you smile as you see your family devouring every single fry.

Serve it as a side to the burger or a sandwich and you have a delicious meal or dip it in my hung curd dip or the creamy cashew and lemon dressing. It comes together so easily and it is an instant crowd pleasing appetizer.

Tips and tricks for crispy chips:

  1. If you like your fries to be crispy, cut them thin. Thicker the fries, lesser crispier they will be.
  2. Though I haven’t used it, addition of cornstarch can also help fries to be extra crispy.
  3. Baking the fries with the skin on gives them that additional layer of texture but its optional. Feel free to peel the sweet potatoes before cutting them in matchsticks.
  4. Lay the fries in the baking tray without overcrowding them. Spreading them in a single layer helps even cooking and crisps up the edges of the fries to perfection.
  5. I doubt you will be able to resist them fresh out of the oven but just in case you do, it will taste as delicious but without that crunch you are looking for.
  6. At every 15-minute time of the total 45-minute cooking time, flip the fries and rotate the pan to cover up for any hot spots that your oven may have.

There, now keeping in all that in mind, let’s start cooking!
